Kenny Britt being shopped hard by Tennessee Titans

Kenny Britt told TitanInsider.com on Monday that he would welcome a "fresh start" if the Tennessee Titans opt to trade him ahead of Tuesday's 4 p.m. ET deadline.

If the Titans can find any team willing to part with a late-round draft pick, Britt might just get his ticket out of Nashville.

Appearing on NFL Network's "NFL Total Access" on Monday, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via several league executives, that the Titans have made it clear to all teams that Britt is available for "not very much."

Added NFL Media columnist Michael Silver, "If you have a 12-pack of Coke and athletic tape, you can have Kenny Britt. Nobody wants him."

It's no surprise that other teams aren't taking the Britt bait. He's been phased out of the offense more because of a litany of drops and penalties than a youth movement. Britt has been one of the least effective wide receivers in the NFL this season.

More trade updates from Monday's "NFL Total Access":

Jairus Byrd: Rapoport is told the Buffalo Bills are more than open to a trade, but any discussions are further complicated by Byrd's desire to become the league's highest-paid safety. One interesting twist, per Rapoport, is that the Bills are seeking a young player as opposed to a draft pick in return for Byrd.

Jared Allen: Any trade for Allen is unlikely because only a few winning teams even have the salary-cap space to take on Allen's monstrous contract. According to Silver, the Minnesota Vikings are bracing for the loss of Allen in the offseason. They are not planning to pay the kind of big-money salary it would take to re-sign him on the open market.
